Polish Mi-24 will be improved by Israeli systems


The Israeli concern Rafael has signed an agreement with PCO providing for the organization in Poland of a joint production of electro-optical search and targeting systems such as Toplite. They plan to equip Mi-24 attack helicopters during the modernization of rotorcraft.


These companies have been cooperating since 2011. One of the Toplite modifications from that time was installed on W-3PL Głuszec helicopters. Allegedly, the sights of this family are fully integrated with the Spike multipurpose missile system. One of its versions - Spike-LR - is already produced under license in Poland at the Mesko factory. Rafael suggests moving the release of other options here armory systems that will be required when upgrading the Mi-24.

EOS Toplite is designed to detect the enemy, target designation and fire control from various types of weapons. Currently, representatives of this family are used in more than 20 countries. Toplite's architecture is open to change, allowing you to adapt it to specific combat missions.

Improving the "drummers" Mi-24 was offered in various ways. One of them involves the installation of Spike-ER and –LR rockets, a 70-mm Mesko rocket launcher and missile launchers with Piorun air-to-air missiles.

    Soviet technology was so good that it was done wisely and reserves a certain amount of modernization.
    If you stuff this helicopter with modern avionics, don’t mourn! Flying tank

      The best is the enemy of the good, i.e. everything must be done wisely, and not "stuff".

    Did the manufacturer give its consent for such modernization by the Israelis?

      And no one asks the manufacturer, the helicopters belong to Poland and it is free to do whatever they want with them, they do it for themselves.

      For example, I can put any tires on my Mercedes, without asking permission from the manufacturer)

        Most changes require PERMISSIONS. If home-made, then no claims or warranties to the manufacturer. It is called - further themselves, themselves, themselves.

            Their problems. We simply state the fact that Soviet equipment is still used, it is justified for many reasons.

          And from the Poles, and so already, there can be no complaints.
          By the prescription of years. These Mi-24s were delivered to them during the Union.

        Greetings! smile
        And if you intervened in the Merce control system in order to improve performance ... then how will the manufacturer react with service?

          The control system is one thing, but no one will forbid me to hang any bells and whistles on the car.
          Well, for any car I will not be taken away. Well refuse to carry out service. I find a private trader

        Illiteracy, arrogance and arrogance are widespread phenomena in our country. If you look, it turns out that some "Mercs" were never produced at all by the "manufacturer" (I hope this is not your case).

      They’ve removed it from the language! Be consistent, give up everything that is so hated by the Soviet, so no- "we play here, we don’t play here, we wrap fish here."

    It seems correct, but the phrase "Polish Mi-24" is read with vexation / bitterness. Although ... the Polish Air Force.

    They declared the Soviet weapons to be occupying, which is why they change tanks, planes, and air defense systems to the west.
    It’s just that there wasn’t enough money for the Apache, and therefore the "occupation" seems to be no longer occupying either.
